The North-East Timber Trade Association (NETTA) is delighted to announce that Bill Urmston Director of Setra Wood Products Ltd, has been elected to the post of NETTA Chairman. Bill is no stranger to the committee having held the post in 2000.

Bill steps into the very capable shoes of Ed Bennett of Bennetts Timber, who steps down as Chairman after two very successful years. On accepting the position, Bill Urmston thanked Ed for his great work over the last 2 years.

The North-East regional association has an extensive membership base, and supports the timber industry in that area with regular events, meetings, and the famous annual dinners! NETTA is one of the six TTF Regional Associations, these associations represent the timber trade in each region and acts as a grass roots channel of communication between the TTF and its members.

The TTF’s aims are to connect potential business partners and clients with local TTF members. Senior TTF staff attend regional meeting regularly to listen to regional issues, and to update members on industry and federation matters.
